Gettysburg Magazine – Subscribe Today!

by Brett Schulte on May 4, 2008 · 0 comments

After seeing references to it often at Eric’s blog and getting onto a bit of a Gettysburg kick lately book wise, I finally did it. I broke down and purchased the entire run of Gettysburg Magazine. Readers wishing to do this have some options. Individual copies of issues 1-5, 10, and 14 are hard to come by and will cost you should you decide to find them out there on eBay or elsewhere. Luckily, there are now three bound volumes, each containing eight issues of the magazine printed in black and white and without the covers. I chose to get the first two bound volumes (issues 1-16) and get the actual issues contained in the third volume (17-24) and beyond (25-38). Others may wish to purchase all three bound volumes, which are very handsome and look like they will hold up well with use. Just glancing through the first bound volume made me believe I have made a sound investment. Detailed maps abound, and articles are documented with numerous notes. The names of the authors are going to be very familiar to Civil War buffs as well.

I wanted to include in this post something Eric also shared from the Gettysburg Discussion Group. It is a message posted for Andy Turner, the new publisher of the Magazine (the former publisher was Morningside). In the message, Andy believes new subscribers for Gettysburg Magazine are needed. Even if you do not plan to get all of the back issues, if you are interested in the battle I highly encourage you to subscribe today! Andy’s message follows:

Lew and I received a letter from Andy Turner, Publisher/Editor of The Gettysburg Magazine today. After thanking us for our support of the magazine, he writes that “we have more articles on hand than we’ve had for many years, which certainly bodes well for the future of the magazine…I can plow straight ahead in an effort to make the magazine the best it can be.

The magazine, since its inception, has never been a money maker. It has almost always broken even, but never been profitable. I believe the financial future of the magazine lies in subscriptions. My goal is to be able to continue the magazine without advertising. To do that, we need to increase the number of subscribers.

The subscription rate has remained steady for many yars now at about 1,500. I find it hard to believe that in this entire country there are only 1,500 people who would want to subscribe to this magazine. This is where we can use your help. If every subscriber could get one new subscriber, it would go a long way to securing the future of the magazine. It could be a friend, a
fellow Round Table member, or even the local library. Every subscription helps.
